South Africa management provides update on George Linde’s injury


Rawalpindi: South Africa have received a headache on Day one of the second Test at Pindi Cricket Stadium after all-rounder George Linde injured a finger of his left hand.

Left-arm orthodox spinner Linde got a blow on the pinkie bone while stopping a powerful shot hit by Babar Azam in his follow-through. He ran straight to the pavilion and Dean Elgar finished the 23rd over.

“He has been stitched up and is going to go for x-rays to check on the pinkie bone soon,” South African team management.


No fracture has been reported on X-ray. South Africa’s medical team will now access whether Linde can play or not.
